Bryan Hitch's Cover For The New Absolute Authority Edition – And Confirmation Of A New Story With Warren Ellis

Absolute Authority was the first of DC's Absolute formats, pioneered by Wildstorm EIC Scott Dunbier, using the French oversized model and applying it to American comics, with far more content, decent paper quality and lush colours. It was a hit and everyone from Marvel to Dark Horse to Image copied it. Dunbier was fired by DC Comics over issues regarding League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Black Dossier, and he ended up at IDW where he continued to innovate formats copies by everyone else, such as the Artist's Edition.

But DC Comics are returning to the one that started it all, Absolute Authority with a new printing – and from Bryan Hitch's tweet above, a new cover.

And yes, to make people like me buy it all over again, a brand new Authority story by Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch.
